I’ve included work made in the last few years. All of it is figurative, though the figure may be a goat or chicken.

My family and I live in a house that’s older than the United States. My own history began in Tyler, Texas. I moved to New York City in 1999 and finished my MFA in painting in 2001 at the School of Visual Arts. Because my husband was in the United States Navy, we moved to many places over a short period of time. We’ve settled in Norwich, CT. While I enjoy that our town is small and historic, I am close enough to New York or Boston to remain active and connected to the art world.
I make drawings on paper and paintings in watercolor, oil, and acrylic. I use my own photography unless making a specific commissioned piece.

When I’m not in the studio painting or being a taxi service for my kids, I am milking, making, and selling goat’s milk soap and lotions!
I make single batches and share or sell as soon as it’s ready. These products make great gifts and the fragrances are light and lovely enough to please most anybody.
Everything is made in single batches and with wonderful ingredients that I slather on the hands and faces of my own family. That’s how I started. We live in New England and winter is cold, dry, and flat out harsh. My son’s hands were very red and dry. Since I had a freezer full of goats milk from my buddy Hazel, I decided to cook up my own solution. As it turned out, goat’s milk makes gorgeous lotion! I would love to say that it magically melted away my wrinkles but it did make our skin feel and smell great! Let me know what you think!
If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, I would love to talk about it! All I need is a really great favorite photo from you and we are ready to go! I am happy to make something intimate like a small watercolor or something big and bold like a vast over- the-fireplace kind of oil on canvas portrait. I look forward to talking with you!
